Building on the overwhelming success of the first annual New Year’s Eve Downeast Lobstah Drop and this years Bold Coast Sea and Sky Festival, organizers, under the direction of event producer, business owner, and Machias resident Bill Burke, are laying the foundation for the second annual Bold Coast Sea & Sky Festival in 2017, sponsored by Machias Rotary, and we want you to be a part!

The Festival, to be held at numerous venues throughout the community, will be a family-friendly array of activities highlighting the rich and varied hallmarks of the region. Events being considered include music and concerts, hot air balloon and vintage airplane rides, a seafood court, children’s educational and recreational activities, artists and crafters, a medieval fair, and a Triathlon relay just to name a few.

This festival will both spark, and feed tourism, positively impacting the economic welfare of our community, as well as provide exciting family entertainment and educational fun for all ages.

This is a non-profit activity, run entirely by volunteers. Our goal is to put on a colorful, and enjoyable event that builds community spirit and enhances the region’s economy!

We are currently looking for volunteers, businesses, organizations, and exhibitors that would like to learn more, and be a part of the planning, as well as the production.
